April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Pitt, who at 50 still looks great with his shirt off, has the gruff charisma to play a dauntless soldier with killer courage and a vestigial streak of humanity.Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 01.05.2015
It's an "unflinching" account of war -- "unflinching," in quotes, because every moment of the film is composed to grind your face into the muck and be proud of itself for doing so.Jake Coyle, Associated Press, 01.05.2015
Pitt is at the top of his game, playing a man who has forgotten whatever he used to be and has wholly embraced his role in this war.Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 01.05.2015
At its best, the movie works as a love letter to camaraderie-by-combat.David Fear, Film Comment Magazine, 11.17.2014
